landfills and also harmful to animals. >> people have to pay attention to it. if you live in a place where they want you to bring your own bags, then do it. i think it's great. >> grocery stores are still able to provide plastic bags for produce and farm sis can still attribute small bags to hold prescription medications. gas prices continue to slip across the country. here in the bay area as well. analysts say they could be even lower by the memorial day weekend. san francisco has the high spriests in the continental u.s. averaging $4.06 a gallon. around the rest of the bay gas is about 12 cents cheaper. that is down three cents a gallon in the last week. analysts say we could pay 20 cents less by the end of next month. >> let's hope so. >> remember when gas used to be 99 cents or $1 .99 a gallon. i remember those days. >> i just look at the total, sal. of how much it costs. >> it's kind of high.
4:49 am
good morning, everybody. the traffic is doing pretty well if you want to save gas mileage. right now would be a good time to be on the road. we are doing pretty well out there. 80 westbound looks pretty good getting out to the mccarthur maze. when you try to get across into san francisco you will see a nice looking drive into the city with no major problems. also san jose 280 north and southbound the traffic continues to look very nice throughout the south bay. 4:48 let's go to steve. sal, thank you. after am sunny and warm weekend. after a sunny and warm weekend. so far lows are starting off a little warmer. near record highs today would be easy to go past the forecasted values. i think it will be close and just shy. still lots of 80s inland. we need 90s to really get the records. fog is coming down the coast. a lot of fog coming up the coast. and that will play into our forecast. maybe if not later today then
4:50 am
certainly tomorrow. high pressure is large and in charge. not only aloft but at the surface. we still get enough of an easterly push to give us no fog. the water temps are unbelievably cold. 49 outside the folden gate. and 49 degrees off of half-moon bay. it wouldn't take much. 50s for many. few upper 40s. the wind is variable. it's not that strong offshore. it's not at oakland. it's west, southwests at sfo. keep an eye on that. if it collapses all bets are off. 30s, 40s, and 50s to 60s in northern california. it's a really mild pattern. everything stays to the north. a little low will work its way into central california by midweek. sunny and warm. 80s to near 90 degrees. antioch in there. and average high this time of year is about 72-73. we are way above 82 fremont.
4:51 am
88 livermore. 80 santa cruz. cool donatussin pretty significant down wednesday and thursday. it looks like acquitted near average temps. >> steve, thank you very much. the warriors first playoff game it was a heartbreaker but adding to the sting which player won't be joining them for the post season. the efforts to save a movie theater before it's torn down.
4:52 am
4:53 am
good morning. no fog yet. it's very mild inland. it might be a little cooler by the coast but not before warm conditions inland. possible records today. but i think we fall just shy. many people living along the mississippi river are bracing for more rain. that is after disastrous springtime flooding that has already caused three deaths. this morning emergency crews are frantically working to hold back the flood waters that have caused huge problems in several states and there is still until word on when the section of the mississippi river will reopen. that is after barges hit a railroad bridge about 30 barges broke free. time now is 4:53. it looks like the end of an era for a contra costa county movie
4:54 am
mark. they were encouraged to sign a petition to save the theater. supporters of the dome hope the city council will reverse the planning commission's approval to tear down the building. >> i hope they would think this through again. >> i figured it's a shame everything that was new that we grew up with is being torn down. >> the city council meets on may 6th but the demolition permit has already been issued. so the dome could be torn down before the end of this month to make room for a sporting goods store. lee tore his hip flexor when he fell. mri exam yesterday confirmed lee suffered a complete tear of his right hip flexor. he will be out for the remainder of the playoffs. the warriors also won game one. game two is tomorrow in denver. managers have learned
4:55 am
special life saving skills. they were trained to perform cpr and used a defibrillator yesterday in response to an incident last weekend. that is when a player went into cardiac arrest. the league has a defibrillator on hand just in case. which is a good thing. getting closer to 5:00. let's take a look at the traffic with sal. >> there is a car in the center divider and a couple of other cars involved. westbound 580 coming off the altamont pass. let's take a look at the rest of the commute. it looks pretty good on interstate 880 right near the coliseum. it's a nice drive with no major problems. also the morning commute looks good on the san mateo bridge. it's a very nice drive over to the high-rise and over to 101. and speaking of 101, when you get there 101 and 280 are doing well on the peninsula. let's go to steve. thank you, sal. we have a lot of 50s here.
4:56 am
not much of a breeze. as that holds, then things will change a little bit. still napa getting more of an easterly breeze. but not at oakland, santa rosa, or sfo. let's keep an eye on it. inland gets a little bit of that offshore breeze. but closer to the coast probably a little bit of an on shore. there is a lot of fog coming down the coast. 30s and 40s and 50s. and 60 in sacramento. 33 up in tahoe. high pressure wind out today. possible record highs. it will be close. warm to hot inland. a late sea breeze by the coast. the water temps are just incredibly cold. 70s for some but a lot of 80s. so way, way above average for this time of year. fog will be back tuesday. and it will be back in a big way wednesday and thursday. it looks like we leveled off. coming up on 5:00 and the surviving boston bombing suspect is beginning to communicate to investigators
4:57 am
